    well its a nice comp but i dont really think a floppy drive is a vital part and personally i would get the radeon x1600xt over the 7600 mainly cause i prefer ati and i have 1 and its lush i love it, it gets the job done for me, but its your comp not mine

    dont think ur missin anything maybe a mouse and keyboard unless you just want to look at your computer and some speakers unless youv already got some check out the creative i-trigue 3400 there good as

    I already have a monitor with speakers attatched to it, and i have a mouse and keyboard too. As for the floppy, i just hvae it for those old school days when i might need it, and for the video card, im a NVIDIA man myself.

    I've had some beef in the past with ATI cards, don't let them talk you out of NVIDIA. they're my favorite too.

    I have several things to point out about this build of yours:
    1) That PSU is complete garbage and will cause a lot of problems down the line. Get this one instead. I've had one and it still works like a charm. Antec makes high-quality PSUs so no wonder there.

    2)ECS makes crappy mobos so I suggest this one instead.

    3)This processor is a better choice since it's faster, dual-core and for the same price as the Pentium 4 u posted.

    4)Assuming ur gonna go with the mobo I posted, ur gonna need this RAM to go with it. It's high-quality RAM and much faster than the DDR RAM u would have been using otherwise.

    5)This is a better choice of cooling system. It's from a well-reputed manufacturer and of high quality.

    6)This DVD burner is a cheaper alternative to that Lite-On one.

    7)This video card is blazes faster than the 7600GS and is a lot cheaper too.

    8)Again assuming that ur gonna go with the Foxconn mobo, u can get this HDD as a master and slave or get a separate slave drive.

    Whew! I hope that helped.:) As u can see, I used all links from They're the best when it comes to computer hardware so remember that in the future.

    Yeah... Why would you build a new system witha P4 when the core 2 duo's are out?

    woah i didn't see you chose ECS motherboard. I got one once and it was really really bad, I returned it and bought a new one(abit) in a week. It had to do with stability problems.
